 Jackson Health Announce Financial Results 


Jackson set another milestone in 2013, exceeding its budget for the second consecutive year and ending with an unprecedented surplus in its continued transformation. Jackson Memorial Hospital Jackson's year-end surplus is estimated at nearly $45.8 million - exceeding the health system's aggressive budget by almost 30 percent.


"Skeptics said Jackson's progress would be unsustainable, but we have proven them wrong," said Carlos A. Migoya, President and CEO of Jackson Health System. "Over the last two years, Jackson has undergone a dramatic turnaround that our community should be proud of and we are continuing to work hard to secure Jackson's long-term sustainability for future generations."


Over the last year, Jackson has successfully expanded its patient base and grown the business of providing for the health care of the people of Miami-Dade County and beyond. More than 73,000 people made the decision to choose Jackson facilities for inpatient or observation care, nearly a 2 percent increase over the prior year and more than 2 percent over budget.


The fiscal improvement does not end there. Cash on hand, a barometer of financial solvency, improved dramatically. Today, Jackson has more than 27 days of cash on hand, compared to a low of just 8.8 in August 2012.
